As editor of a woman's magazine and a blogger for women, I hear it all day long. "I am old...I am fat..I have bags...I have wrinkles..."
Few accept a complement without following it with a negative...
One of my daily goals, is to encourage and complement women all day long...whether in the line at the grocery store, in the office, or online. It always leads to a smile and an open door to conversation.
Encouraging others also takes our focus off our own problems and can brighten our own day in immeasurable ways.
If you are given a complement, smile big and say thank you...without any excuses.
Then be determined to give complements yourself...it will lighten your own heart and make your day more fun.
There is something beautiful about every woman...hands down true. Look for it and have others see it through your eyes.
Have a joyful day!
